Early this afternoon, officers from the Rock Valley College Police Department (RVCPD) responded to a report of an incident on the bridge near the Student Center on Main Campus. A witness reported a male individual shouting, indicating that someone may be in possession of a weapon.
Officers have checked the area and spoken with witnesses. The incident appears to have been a hoax and no credible threat has been identified.
The investigation continues in an effort to identity persons involved. Any information related to this incident may be reported to the RVCPD at 815-921-4357. Any assistance is greatly appreciated, and reports may be anonymous.
